Stone Steps - Problem Solving

Today me and Lyric worked together on our math DLO on how much steps it would take to get to the end. There where 48 steps and there where 4 people they all where older than each other and taller than each other. They all took different amounts of steps Mira would take 1 step and Api would take 2 steps. We had to figure out how to solve the problem and write how you solved it.

World Of Maths

On Tuesday Ls2 went to world of maths we where put into groups with Ls1. Then we where introduced to Charles. He was the one that owned all of the activities that we had to do with our groups. We got told to choose an activity that we wanted to do. We worked as a team and collaborated when we really needed help. We tried to finger out how to beat the kind of roads. We had to start from point a and get to point f but we had to touch every road without touching it twice. This was also my favourite one because the maths was more like strategies.

Exercise - Dance

Today we had our first session of dance we had to look at warm ups and try to copy them. A warm up is doing stretches that makes all the blood cells pump through your body. It is very important for you to do stretching before exercising because it causes less injuries. Our task was to create a 5 minute routine on stretching most of our body parts and share it to a different group. I enjoyed sharing our routine with the other group and reading the other groups comment. I need to practice my formation.

Making Connections

L.I. Identify connections text to text, text to world and text to self

Text to text

Text to world
Text to self
Something I have read or watched that is like this is...
Something I know about that is like this is...
My reaction to this story is...
Something that I have read like this story is the Charge of the Light Brigade  
Image result for charge of the light brigade
North Korea and USA are getting nuclear weapons especially nuclear bombs.
Amazing and also kind of sad at the same time when they died.

I think that they both think alike but at different times there attitude changes. Like when they got warned they were going to get bombed the wife was calm and Jim was concern.Image result for when the wind blows

Today Brooklyn, Lyndon and I have completed our informed opinion on landfills. Then we had to read two articles that explained why we have to recycle our rubbish. We had to answer why NZ throws away 3.6 million rubbish how does this make you feel? and why?   

Half Strategy

This is an example of what the half strategy is 2000, 1000, 500, 250, 125 & 62.5 The sequence ends when there is a decimal point. I think this strategy is good because its easy for me to half its also easy for me to half it into decimal numbers.
